NFSAM Circular Guidance on Joint Agency Memorandum to the Field for Food Security Act and Clean Water Act Implementation
August 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Participate in this training to learn about NRCS staff responsibilities from the Agency signing the 2020 Memorandum to the Field with the Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency. The presentation will discuss the Memorandum to the Field concerning the implementation of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and the Wetland Conservation provisions of the Food Security Act of 1985 (FSA), as amended. The Memorandum provides procedures for use by all 3 agency personnel and will facilitate the agencies’ efforts to ensure that federal wetland programs are administered in an efficient and effective manner while minimizing impacts to affected landowners and operators fulfilling the missions of the agencies. The Memorandum directs agencies to minimize duplication of efforts, pursuant to the CWA Section 404 program and the FSA Wetland Conservation provisions while recognizing the inherent differences in the purpose and language of each law. This training specifically will provide information on policy and guidance for the wetland conservation policy in Title 180, National Food Security Act Manual (NFSAM), Fifth Edition, which was updated due to the signing of the Memorandum.
